The Catalans have since taken complete control of the game and taken the lead in the 34th minute. After a pass from Alejandro Balde Robert Lewandowski sent the ball into the goal.
After 7 minutes, the second goal fell into the visitors’ goal. This time it was Memphis Depay.
In the 45th minute, Elche Francisco Rodriguez, who lost his temper, was also sent off, so the visitors found themselves in a catastrophic situation.
